Targeted strategies for tuberculosis in areas of high HIV prevalence: a simulation study

Targeted strategies for tuberculosis in areas of high HIV prevalence: a simulation study
Targeted strategies for tuberculosis in areas of high HIV prevalence: a simulation study
We describe the analysis of a discrete event simulation model of tuberculosis (TB) and HIV disease, parameterized to describe the dual epidemics in Harare, Zimbabwe. The HIV epidemic in Sub-Saharan Africa is particularly severe and has led to a significant rise in TB cases. We use the model to evaluate new strategies for improved detection of TB cases in a high HIV prevalence setting. The structure of the model and its validation will be discussed, but the paper will focus on the analysis of the model output.

Abstract

We describe the analysis of a discrete event simulation model of tuberculosis (TB) and HIV disease, parameterized to describe the dual epidemics in Harare, Zimbabwe. The HIV epidemic in Sub-Saharan Africa is particularly severe and has led to a significant rise in TB cases. We use the model to evaluate new strategies for improved detection of TB cases in a high HIV prevalence setting. The structure of the model and its validation will be discussed, but the paper will focus on the analysis of the model output.
